KHATSAHLANO STREET PARTY ANNOUNCES ITS 2023 MUSIC LINEUP FEATURING OVER 60 PERFORMERS!
Brought to you with love by the Merchants of West 4th Avenue, Khatsahlano Street Party returns for its 11th year on West 4th Ave, between Burrard and MacDonald, for an action-packed day of fun. This year we invite all our festival goers to #EARNYOURSTRIPES by completing a series of must-see and do highlights on SATURDAY, JULY 8th, from 11 AM – 9 PM.
West 4th community staple Zulu Records has curated the perfect playlist for the day, filled with something for everyone. Vancouver’s own indie rock darlings Yukon Blonde will be bringing their unique sonic aesthetic to the Burrard Stage, presented by TD & Stir. More Burrard Stage highlights include singer, songwriter, and producer Louise Burns, and contemporary alt-pop band Daysormay.
Hot off the heels of his “Going Coastal” Tour Pink Mountaintops will be rocking out on the MacDonald Stage, brought to you by Third.Space and Daily Hive. Accompanying Pink Mountaintops is guitar-slinging road warrior Skye Wallace and indie musician turned TikTok sensation Noble Son, Juno award-winner Desireé Dawson plus many more!
More performance highlights include singer, songwriter, Tariq Hussian, and contemporary alt-pop artist WALLGRIN, among many others.
“For all of us involved in presenting Khatsahlano, we are grateful for the opportunity to present such a diverse selection of some of the finest music this region has to offer. Khatsahlano again showcases so many great local musicians, worthy of seeing year round, wherever they might perform. Such a selection of talent, encompassing 10 blocks on West 4th on July 8th, It’s truly a treat to the ears of anyone attending!” said Grant McDonagh of Zulu Records.
